    Up-and-coming rapper Kid Cudi will make his acting debut in a new HBO series titled "How To Make It In America." The series will be produced by the team behind 'Entourage,' Cudi says "My character's name is Domingo Dean and he's good friends with main characters Ben (played by Mr. Bryan Greenberg) and Cam (played by Mr. Victor Rasuk)… My role is def comic relief and then some lol so I'm excited." The series will follow a pair of enterprising twenty-something-year-olds who hustel their way through New York, determined to get achieve the American dream.

    Kid Cudi, who is signed to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music, was featured on Kanye's "808s & Heartbreak" album and is currently working on his debut, "Man On The Moon: The Guardians." Talking about the title, Cudi says "It's about my rise, my birth until now, present day. Me growing up, not knowing that this would be my destiny. All my hardships growing up and kinda becoming one with myself."
